A Lodging member recently called to tell us what happened when a staff member called Cal/OSHA about a lack of drinking water on the job. He suggested that we share his experience with others.
Here are the highlights of what the inspector asked about:
- Eye washing station
- MSDS book – a new employee didn’t know about it
- Where do employees take their breaks?
- Verbal training – always document it
- COVID training
- Checked Posted Notices
His story is a good reminder to always record your training efforts, particularly with new employees.
